With a forecast of strong winds again this past weekend, on Sunday we decided to paddle close to home. So it was off to Philips once again. Tobias and I had a short paddle (13 km) to Topsail Beach and back. Although the wind was strong at the beginning of our paddle, it eased off after about 3 km. We had been hoping for strong winds to blow us back to St. Philips but it was not to be. We had to settle for moderate waves to take us home.
